“Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.” 1 Peter 2:12 ->me: Conduct here refers to a day-by-day pattern of life. At work, this is something I keep on the forefront of my mind and in my actions during interactions with both fellow employees as well as customers. What I have found is that the outward common space interactions and behavior ring very true to reflecting this command…but behind closed doors in 1:1s where I might be venting or ‘soliciting feedback’, the flesh of my heart can rear its head. I can find myself being critical of others, maybe evening whining, being manipulative, and other worldly common/normal corporate workplace back biting can happen. Scroll up and read yesterday’s verse again…<hanging head low> I have so far to go. I am so thankful for God’s mercy and grace while He works in me to reveal these barren/unchecked areas of my walk that need cleaned up.
